SWFBUD is happy to say that we are shifting the 2009 Bicycle Bash by the Bay, presented by Cure on Wheels to Straub Park in downtown St. Petersburg from Vinoy Park. It's not a big move because Straub Park is literally around the corner from Vinoy Park, but SWFBUD is moving the venue to allow a major national senior men's cross-country run to use Vinoy Park on Oct. 11. I'm told that 1,200 out-of-town runners will be partipating on the senior cross-country run and that many local high school and college runners will be running before the senior men's event.
We expect many people from the senior men's 5K run to visit the 2009 Bicycle Bash by the Bay at Straub Park, and much more foot traffic from downtown St. Petersburg than in previous year because Straub Park is closer to The Pier and the downtown business district.
Many of you are familiar with Straub Park from visiting the popular St. Anthony's Triathlon Vendor Expo on the Saturday before the Sunday triathlon in late March.
If you want to be a vendor or sponsor of the Bicycle Bash by the Bay, contact me at email@example.com.
